      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

question Any News RE: Cilogear?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Anyone been in contact with Cilogear lately? Most of their trademark items on their site (IE worksack) seem to be out of stock and have been for a while and their social media accounts seem to have been quiet for the past few months. I have tried contacting many of the retailers that have carried their gear in the past and they all say they don't anymore and haven't heard from Cilo in a while 

I've heard various reports of the owner having battled a nasty case of pneumonia as well as that they have stopped accepting orders due to government/military orders being due. I tried contacting the shop but received no response.

Anyway - hope they are well. Just curious if anyone has heard anything.

Yeah seems like there on some sort of hiatus or something. They posted October hinting on working on something new. I hope they change there production and the customer service side of the company. Lead times for packs and communication with them leaves much to be desired. Awesome packs though, have three of various sizes and ages.

Yes I had a W/NWD worksack that I sold a few years back that I regret selling - from their social media feeds it looks like they are done making the W/NWD. I saw a post from them where they were talking about 'Spectra Black Quad i believe it was called - some kind of new fabric which I havent heard of from any other companies. I have had my own share of frustration with their customer service as well but you're right in that they make a great product

Yeah massive bummer about the W/NWD not being used anymore. It's honestly the best iteration of a full dyneema fabric I've seen or used. That Spectra black quad seems similar to the dyneema grid ripstop used everywhere, but with more strands of dyneema and better abrasion resistance.
